“My husband has never been married,” Actress Funke Akindele insists in response to much of the hear say about her marriage to Almaroof.
“I am the woman he got married to. I was married properly. Alot of negative comments came from sadists who want to run their mouths. So because I am a Youth Ambassador or Celebrity, I can’t have my life?
It is my life. If I do things because people want me to, I will end up unhappy. I do whatI do because I want to be happy. I would still continue to teach morals and campaign against HIV/AIDS and enlighten the youths.
It doesn’t make me bad; that is even if it is, because I can tell you authoritatively that my husband is not married to anyone else.
Yes, he has beautiful children, who are not mine now and we have a cordial relationship, which dates back to even before we got married. So what if he has kids? Is that a disease? That is where my heart is!
I had many non-biological children even before I got married.
I take them as my own children, pay their bills and help them. I have always loved children. So now that God has given me these ones, what should I do?
Will people be happier if I had married someone who didn’t have children, seem so perfect, put on my make-up and fake smile on the red carpet and start weeping when I get home?’
And about my in-laws, they are very wonderful and supportive and my parents and siblings as well.”
